Finishing Strong

Posted: 29 Dec 2020 05:33 AM

The days left during the year 2020 are thankfully dwindling. The featured chart presents the yearly precipitation totals for Des Moines since 1971. The 2020 total is a few inches below the simple average of around 36 inches for this period. A significant weather system will impact the state today and into Wednesday, which will help give the precipitation total a strong finish to the year. Another system will closely follow behind, but the bulk of its precipitation may fall after the calendar turns to 2021.

Good = 12
Bad = 1
Abstain = 1
